Reporting falconry activities.

(1) Throughout this chapter, reporting of falconry activities is a requirement of regulations. All raptor acquisitions, captures, purchases, gifting, sales, transfers, releases, banding, escapes, loss by death, and all other changes in raptor status are to be reported to the department and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Reporting will be done by filing a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Form 3-186A with both agencies.
(2) The form may be submitted directly to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to a national computer electronic reporting system online via the website The department accesses information from that database to satisfy the state reporting requirement. For those who do not wish to submit electronic reports, the department will accept paper forms and will enter the falconry transaction into the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service database. The department may charge an administrative processing fee per paper form.
(3) A falconer is required to keep copies of all electronic database submissions or paper forms documenting take, transfer, loss, banding, or microchipping of each falconry raptor until five years after a falconry raptor transaction.
